1960 Combined Sydney Marist v St Joseph’s Marist Bothers Lismore –
Derek Goodwin wrote: I am writing in regard to a combined Marist Brothers Team that was assembled in 1960 and travelled to Lismore to play St Joseph’s Marist Bothers Lismore. I have found 2 players from St Benedicts who were in the side and I was wondering if your School may have been involved. I have enclosed a photo which shows Lismore standing and the Sydney side kneeling in front. Also does anyone happen to know the Guernseys they are wearing. I know this is gong back in time but I was hoping you may be able to assist. Thank you, Derek.

The Old Boys Union had some old film reels digitised recently. Enjoy
Thank you very much to Melissa Mackay, the daughter of the late Michael McCarthy (1970) who made the following comment in respect of the Old Boys blog post
“I was actually searching for something to do with the Commonwealth Bank for work and came across this photo. The man in the back row (far right) is my late father, Michael McCarthy. Dad passed away in March 2011. It was a lovely surprise to come across this photo on the web!”
This comment was really appreciated and made the pleasurable task of maintaining the Old Boys Union website all worthwhile.
